Karate student Lee Jenkins wants to try to settle problems without fighting, but a school bully calls him chicken and bothers his brothers because he won't fight
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 4-6-- A promising book in a new series. Michael, Jeremy, and their adopted Vietnamese brother, Lee, are all studying karate. When Lee beats class bully Kevin in an exercise, Kevin takes it personally. He and his brother Jason decorate Lee's locker with chicken feathers, then slash his bike tires. Lee can't figure out how to keep his honor while still using karate only in defense. When he seeks to understand his opponents, however, he solves his problem. Some of the characters tend towards stereotype, but it's still nice to see a book integrate martial arts practices and philosophy with everyday situations. Plus, the suspense and tension will hold the attention of reluctant readers. --Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
